Chapter 432: Senior, can I borrow your brain for a bit?
Translator: GodBrandy Editor: Kurisu
Was this considered 'borrowing a chicken to lay eggs'? Or to put it more accurately, 'borrowing a senior's brain to practice saber techniques'?
Song Shuhang felt that leveling up skills this way was simply too awesome.
If he could get rid of that lag, it would be even more perfect.
Thereupon since he could control this body only for a limited amount time, Song Shuhang didn't waste time. He placed the treasured saber Broken Tyrant on the ground and started displaying all the cultivation or magical techniques in his possession.
Basic Buddhist Fist Technique, True Self Meditation Scripture, Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk, Immovable Body of the Buddha, and the Huge Whale Chapter of the Thirty-Three Divine Beasts' Technique.
Then, it was the turn of the three small tricks based on the usage of mental energy.
As well as the Lightning Palm and the fire controlling art.
He even decided to use the Turtle Breathing Technique and the battery charging technique while he was at it.
The only technique he didn't dare to use was the Roaring Lion's Technique. After all, if he were to suddenly roar and disturb the other seniors while they were modifying their hand-guided tractors, they might get angry.
It would be tragic if the methods they had prepared for True Monarch White Crane ended up being used on him instead...
The results of the training session were amazing.
Whether it was the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique, the Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk, the Lightning Palm, or the fire controlling art, Song Shuhang felt that the level of these skills had gone up by a notch.
Since he had had many fortuitous and deadly encounters lately, Song Shuhang's realm had increased very quickly, reaching the Second Stage Realm in less than two months.
Therefore, the level of his skills was slightly lower than that of his peers in the same realm.
After all, ordinary cultivators took 'years' to reach the Second Stage Realm and not 'months'. Therefore, their skills were at a very high level. In particular, the skills they had used to build their foundation in the First Stage were at least at the 'master level'.
On the other hand, although he had diligently practiced every day, Song Shuhang had trained for less than two months in the end. Even the Basic Buddhist Fist Technique that he had practiced day and night for all this time was still at the 'intermediate level', and he was not even halfway through his way to the 'master level'.
Although he used the Virtuous Man's Ten Thousand Mile Walk whenever he had the chance, this technique was also only about to enter the intermediate level.
On the other hand, the magical technique 'Lightning Palm' was still at the beginner level.
But at this time Song Shuhang could use Young Master Phoenix Slayer's brain to train them.
As a consequence, the level of his skills rose sharply.
Whether they were fist techniques, footwork, cultivation techniques, or magical techniques, after using them two, three times, he reached the master level.
This feeling was simply too amazing, and even that lag of three seconds became somewhat cute in his eyes.
Although his realm hadn't increased, Song Shuhang was sure that his fighting capacity would increase by a whole rank after his consciousness returned to his body.
"Practicing while controlling someone else's body is truly wonderful! Later, if I don't comprehend a saber or cultivation technique properly, I might look for Senior Phoenix Slayer and have him help me" Song Shuhang muttered to himself.
As for the wording to use while asking for his help, which one was the best...
Senior Phoenix Slayer, there is a problem. Even after practicing the XXX technique for a while, I wasn't able to understand it properly. Can you lend me your head... ugh, your mind for a while so that I can practice it to perfection?
Hmm, it had a nice ring to it.
"There is still the Flaming Saber Technique left!" Song Shuhang controlled Young Master Phoenix Slayer's body and raised the treasured saber Broken Tyrant.
Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven taught him this saber technique in the memories of the loose cultivator Li Tiansu.
Although Scarlet Heaven said that it was a very ordinary saber technique that could be found everywhere, Song Shuhang felt that this wasn't truly the case, and he was sure of it as his understanding of the technique was getting deeper.
However, both his realm and level of the Flaming Saber Technique were insufficient to bring out the full potential and power of the technique.
If he could borrow Young Master Phoenix Slayer's brain and increase his understanding of this skill and bring out its real power, perhaps he wouldn't lose so easily anymore.
Said and done.
Song Shuhang recalled the scene of Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven displaying the Flaming Saber Technique and tried to visualize that saber intent capable of burning the world.
Soon after, he spun his wrist.
The Flaming Saber slashed as saber light flashed, swift and violent!
Three seconds later, Song Shuhang blinked his eyes What? Where are the flames?
Shouldn't there be flames burning on the saber at this point?
Right now, there wasn't anything on the blade of the saber.
Moreover, Young Master Phoenix Slayer's brain didn't offer any inspiration pertaining to the Flaming Saber Technique or other understandings about basic saber techniques.
"It didn't work?" Song Shuhang furrowed his brows.
Is it possible that I used the wrong stance while performing the technique?
Therefore, he recalled once more the scene of Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven unleashing his saber intent and spun his wrist, slashing once more.
The saber light flashed. But just like before, nothing happened.
Three seconds later, Song Shuhang stopped performing the Flaming Saber Technique and started to ponder.
From the looks of it, the Flaming Saber Technique was different from the other techniques he practiced even with the help of Young Master Phoenix Slayer's brain, he was unable to increase the level of this particular technique.
"Later, I'll have to put in more effort while practicing the Flaming Saber Technique," Song Shuhang thought to himself.
It was worth it on his part to put more effort and energy into this rather uncommon version of the Flaming Saber Technique.
Perhaps he might be able to burn the sun, the moon, the sky, the earth, and the oceans with one slash just like Daoist Priest Scarlet Heaven one day.
Just as he was in deep thoughts, the disciples that were helping Young Master Phoenix Slayer spray the hand-guided tractor finished their job and came toward him.
They came over to tell him that the hand-guided tractor had been thoroughly modified.
After Young Master Phoenix Slayer finished modifying his tractor, the other fellow daoists also finished their modifications one after another.
Now they only had to wait for Venerable White to contact the 'referee' and have the 'spectators' come over. Then, the hand-guided tractor competition would be finally able to commence.
In the meantime.
As before, Fengshou Express Delivery's Sima Jiang was still driving, traveling further and further on this unfamiliar road.
"It can't be. I really lost my way." Sima Jiang stopped the car and rubbed his temples, his expression one of worry.
He had no idea what happened in this place, but the surrounding area had changed completely.
Even after driving on this road for quite a while, he still managed to lose his way and return to his original position. It felt as though he had been driving in circles for the whole time.
One could only say that his luck wasn't too good today.
When the Chu Family and the Illusory Sword School battled on the Grievance Settling Platform earlier this morning, the two factions had some of their experts come over and arrange a few low-level illusory formations in the surrounding area so as to avoid ordinary people rushing toward the Grievance Settling Platform and interrupting the matches.
Normally speaking, the members of the two factions would remove the formations after the end of the battle.
But today's battles were a bit out of the ordinary.
After their defeat, the Illusory Sword School left the Grievance Settling Platform in low spirits, and since there were many powerful seniors in the camp of the Chu Family, none of their disciples dared to stay behind and remove the illusory formations.
As for the people of the Chu Family, they quickly hurried back to their clan since something unexpected happened, forgetting to send someone to remove the formations.
As a consequence, Sima Jiang was now thoroughly lost inside the formation and kept driving in circles.
"Ah! How good it would be if a kind-hearted person were to come over so that I could ask them for directions," Sima Jiang muttered to himself.
Perhaps because he gathered some luck after delivering so many packages for the members of the Nine Provinces Number One Group...
...as soon as he finished speaking, he heard the sound of a racing car transmit from behind.
Sima Jiang happily turned his head around and looked behind.
But in the next moment, his face slightly twitched.
Because he saw a vehicle shaped after a 'dugout canoe' quickly dashing toward him while emitting the rumbling sound of a racing car.
As if that wasn't enough, the speed of this thing was extremely quick!
What is this gadget?!
Name: Su Wenqu.
Dao name: 'Saber Carrying Scholar'.
This man was the only son of True Monarch Eternal Fire, a member of the White Cloud Academy.
At the age of 48, he was already a cultivator of the Third Stage Battle King Realm.
Zhou Li's sweetheart, Teacher Ouyang Yuan, was also a member of the White Cloud Academy.
In the recent years, the members of the scholarly faction distanced themselves from the world and rarely showed their faces around. One time, Su Clan's Seven thought of looking for a scholar for a fight, but no matter how he looked around, he simply couldn't find one...
Su Wenqu was the same as most scholarly disciples, and he liked to live a simple life.
It was worth mentioning that Su Wenqu's real dao name was 'Jade Sword Scholar'.
One time, while he was fighting against the disciple of a demonic sect, his sword was broken to pieces by the heavy weapon of the opposite party. At that time, he resolutely picked up a big hacking saber from the ground and used it to execute his sword techniques. The display of strength was overbearing, and the enemy was forced to retreat in defeat again and again.
Later, when the reinforcements of the White Cloud Academy came over and saw the scene, the nickname 'Saber Carrying Scholar' passed from mouth to mouth and unknowingly, whenever Su Wenqu was mentioned, they would think of the name 'Saber Carrying Scholar'.
On the contrary, no one remembered his real dao name, 'Jade Sword Scholar'.
At this time, Su Wenqu was driving his personal racing car, the 'lonely boat', and planning to head toward the coastal area. He had an appointment with several friends and was now looking for the place where they were going to race.
Moreover, he heard from his father True Monarch Eternal Fire that a senior was holding a very special competition on the coastal area. Apparently, this competition also consisted in vehicles racing against each other...
His father had been invited to this competition as a referee and the place where that competition was held was also the coastal area.
Su Wenqu really liked racing and found it very interesting.
As soon as he was done racing with his friends, he would head toward that other competition to take a look.
But just as he was driving, he saw an express delivery vehicle that had stopped on the edge of the road ahead, its owner wearing a worried expression on his face.
